    UL felt it good enough to be taken seriously here using it as a foundation on which industrial GFCI protection is implemented.
    LV GFCI and MV are not the same application of course.

    2.4kv can be brought into the structure.

    There is nothing in the NESC which says this voltage must be cleared under 5 cycles.


    I'd like my theory challenged and discussed because its something I'm genuinely curious about.
    The NESC does say that the primary and secondary neutral should be connected when you have a MGN system.
    BB+/BB=?

      True- but the physiological response to any given shock does not change.

      True- but nothing on how to limit the duration of the voltage imposed on the LV neutral.

        Food for thought. What do you think? Is this a legit way of determining if they should be interconnected?

                    Looks like some of these 'earthing systems' make a difference Mr. mbrooke .....~RJ~

                              Seems to play a role here.
